Uchter Knox married Agnes Lyle, daughter of Lord Lyle of Duchall. Rogers reports two sons, Uchter and George.[1][2]

There is an Uchtred Knox who in 1474 "resigned the lands of Knox, Ranfurley and Griff Castle to the crown in return for a new grant of the same (the charter still being extant in the Registery Office of the Great Seal in Edinburgh)". His father was John Knox. He married Agnes and had a son of the same name who succeeded him. His son married a Janet, daughter of Lord Semple and had at least two sons. [3]

This Uchter was also one of the arbiters who determined the boundary of the lands of the convent at Paisley in 1489.[1]

Knox-2064 and Knox-433 appear to represent the same person because: no sources for dates, all are estimates, wife name and death date are the same.
